I cook my oatmeal in milk not water. I put a tablespoon of natural peanut butter @ room temperature in the bottom of my bowl and pour my hot oatmeal over it. Gently stir.

The peanut butter adds higher protein and a healthy oil and is much better than adding any form of sugar.

I tried the oatmeal in the crock pot but my little one must be smaller. I had to scale down the recipe to fit. Will try cooking with some dried fruit next time.

I'm boring with my toast and marmite. Sometimes I go as far as boiled egg or home made muesli.

I am so doing the oatmeal in the crock pot. Thanks for posting the breakfast ideas. I'm a bit burned out on my usual:

Sausage/Egg Scramble:

1/2 tsp coconut oil
1/4 cup turkey sausage crumbles (Jimmy Dean)
1 extra large egg
1 tsp cold water

NOTE: The Jimmy Dean Hearty Turkey Sausage Crumbles is usually already thawed at the store but I take it home & throw it in the freezer. If you keep your crumbles in the fridge, you won't have to pre-warm the crumbles.

Add coconut oil to non stick fry pan & heat up pan. Add sausage crumbles & cover/cook over medium heat for about 1-2 minutes. Uncover & remove from heat. Scramble egg & add cold water (I really eyeball the water). Pour in pan & replace over medium low heat. As egg on bottom begins to cook, pull cooked egg portions to center of pan, letting uncooked egg roll to outside. I do this just once & then cover with the lid for about 1-2 minutes & then flip the eggs, recover/cook for another 1-2 minutes. If you want to add cheese, add it to the top of the eggs after flipping.

I put a bit of red taco sauce on the plate & dip the eggs in it.

I did try using 2 large eggs, too much for me & here in my town it's really hard to find medium sized eggs.

Not a crockpot recipe - but pretty quick. Egg Frittatas
Prep time takes me about 20 minutes, cook time about 25 minutes
Makes 24 large muffin-size Frittatas. Great for a quick breakfast through the week - haven't tried freezing them yet, but probably will next. :-).

Need muffin tin(s), and 1 skillet/pan for cooking

2 red peppers
1 green pepper
1 white onion
bacon/ham (meat of choice)
12 eggs

Preheat oven 325F

Dice Peppers and cook meat if needed. Then dice the onion and cook it in the same pan as the meat (drain grease if needed). While the onion cooks, dice the cooked meat. Mix all the veggies together. In a different bowl beat eggs.

Spray/grease muffin tin(s), put veggy mixture into the muffin tins (fill till about half full), then add egg until its 4/5ths full (the egg does expand a bit so don't want it filled to the top).

Cook for 25-30 minutes (if using mini-muffin tin, may need to adjust time)

I'm just restarting to make yogurt and low calorie granola in my crockpot.

Yogurt is actually really easy to make in the crockpot. I pour a half gallon of skim milk into a 4 qt. slow cooker and set it on low for 2.5 hours. After 2.5 hours, I unplug the slow cooker and let it set for another 3 hours. After 3 hours, you take about 2 cups of the warm milk and mix in half a cup of room temperature plain yogurt with live active cultures (VERY IMPORTANT) and a half a cup of nonfat dry milk powder (this helps thicken the yogurt up, which is important if you aren't using whole milk for your yogurt). Stir this back into the rest of the warm milk still in the crockpot, then cover the crocpot completely (including the bottom) with a thick blanket and let sit 8 hours or overnight. You should have yogurt in the morning!

For my granola, I stir together 7.5 cups of old fashioned oats, 2 large mashed overripe bananas, 1/2 cup of applesauce, and 1/2 tablespoon of ground cinnamon in a large crockpot. I set it on low for 4-5 hours, and when I put on the lid i vent it a little bit to let steam escape. Stir every 20-25 minutes so that it doesn't burn. Halfway through, I add a half a cup of sunflower seeds.

I eat a half a cup of the yogurt and a half a cup of the granola with some fruit every breakfast.

I modified both of these recipes from ones I saw on Crockpot 365 and Fat Secret.

A family member gave me some steel cut oats and I haven't found the time to cook them. I never thought of a slow cooker, thanks.

I dreamed about this recipe last night and realized that I had dropped a 3 on the water. It's actually 3 3/4 cup water! I've edited the first post - not sure where my fingers were yesterday.

The instructions for steel cut oats is usually 1 cup oats to 4 cups water, but since you aren't losing moisture with the pokey pot we thought the oats were too water.

Thanks. I bet you could reheat another day as well. We are only two.

It makes about 4-5 hearty servings. I pull the little pokey pot (nickname the kids and I gave it since it's so small and slow) out and stick it in the fridge for snacks later.

If I've not put anything extra in it overnight, then I take the leftover oatmeal later and stick it in the bread maker with other stuff for oatmeal bread.

Oatmeal in the crockpot

1 cup Irish style oats
3 3/4 cup water

optional - nuts, cranraisins, raisins, dried fruit mix

I use a small "dipping" crockpot for this. It plugs in to be on and unplug is off - found it at Goodwill.

Place ingredients in the crockpot, plug in and let cook overnight. Breakfast the next a.m. - I find the irish oats hold up better and since a crockpot doesn't cook off the water - I find the reduced water is sufficient.
